You can stay in the Goodyear Blimp for $150 a night

To celebrate college football's 150th anniversary this year, Airbnb is offering fans the chance to stay overnight in the famous Blimp for the first time ever, charging $150 per night (plus taxes and fees) for two guests.

The booking includes exclusive access to the hanger (which is the size of 2.6 football fields) where guests can relax and sleep inside, a football lounge, a lakefront spot (including grill, firepit, cornhole and other essentials) and prime tickets (with official gear) to the MI vs. Notre Dame game.

The Airbnb host for the listing is none other than Jerry Hissem, Goodyear's chief pilot.

The blimp is docked in Mogodore, Ohio, at the Wingfoot Lake Airship Hanger, the world's oldest airship base, which was built in 1917, according to Goodyear.

Tickets will be available on October 15 and are expected to move fast, so plan your purchase accordingly.

The only bummer is the blimp will be grounded during your stay.

Guests will also receive tickets to the October 26 game in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The Goodyear hangar, which is the size of 2.6 football fields, has been revamped for the occasion.

Fans lucky enough to land this Airbnb will receive tickets to the football game and official gear.

"Your Blimp accommodations will have you doing a touchdown dance", the listing reads.

Later this year, the Goodyear Blimp will become the first non-player or coach to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame for providing aerial game coverage since 1955. "And, they will get to meet many of our crew and learn about the blimp".

Somehow, Goodyear squeezed a bed, a couch, two chairs, several tables, a potted plant and plenty of football knicknacks into the tiny blimp gondola, and it looks surprisingly cozy.

The Goodyear Blimp listing on Airbnb is titled, "A Touchdown Stay in the Goodyear Blimp" and the listing said reservation opportunities will roll out throughout the day on October 15.
